LyricsEdit

When I look up to the skies
I see your eyes a funny kind of yellow
I rush home to bed, soak my head
I see your face underneath my pillow
I wake next morning, tired, still yawning
See your face come peeping through my window

Pictures of matchstick men and you
Mirages of matchstick men and you
All I ever see is them and you

When I look up to the skies
I see your eyes a funny kind of yellow
I wake next morning, tired, still yawning
See your face come peeping through my window

Pictures of matchstick men
Pictures of matchstick men

Windows echo your reflection
When I look in their direction now
Faces are hurting me
Your face it just won't leave me alone

Pictures of matchstick men and you
Mirages of matchstick men and you
All I ever see is them and you

You're in the sky
You're with the sky
You make men cry
You lie

You're in the sky
You're with the sky
You make me cry
You lie

Pictures of matchstick men
Pictures of matchstick men and you
